Here are some day to day examples of plumbing terminology for the domestic market:
  • supply and fit a bath or basin point. (This means to supply all materials and labour to bring the necessary water to the point where the bath or basin are to be installed but excludes the bath or basin)
  • supply and fit 110mm main drain. (To supply the piping and couplers, dig a trench to lay the pipe in, and lay the pipe to the building inspector’s satisfaction.)
  • install a geyser only. (Fit a geyser, connect the piping to it and check for leaks. This would exclude the costs of a geyser and pressure valve as well as the electrical installation.)
  • supply and fit a geyser. (This would include the supply and installation of the geyser and related items to a stage where the geyser would be deemed operational)
